Listen to Alexandra Wilson-Elizondo, Head of Multi-Asset Funds & Model Portfolio Management, join the hosts of ETF Prime Podcast to highlight our approach to ETF model portfolios.
The Goldman Sachs Access Emerging Markets USD Bond ETF (the “Fund”) seeks to provide investment results that closely correspond, before fees and expenses, to the performance of the FTSE Goldman Sachs Emerging Markets USD Bond Index (the “Index”), which is designed to measure the performance of investment grade and high yield bonds issued by emerging market governments or quasi-government entities denominated in U.S. dollars that meet certain liquidity, governance and fundamental screening criteria. The Fund’s investments are subject to the risks associated with debt securities generally, including credit, liquidity, interest rate, call and extension risk. Foreign and emerging markets investments may be more volatile and less liquid than investments in U.S. securities and are subject to the risks of currency fluctuations and adverse social, economic or political developments. Issuers of sovereign or quasi-sovereign debt may be unable or unwilling to repay principal or interest when due. The Fund may invest in non-investment grade securities, which involve greater price volatility and present greater risks than higher rated fixed income securities. Because the Fund may concentrate its investments in an industry or group of industries to the extent that the Index is concentrated, the Fund may be subject to greater risk of loss as a result of adverse economic, business or other developments affecting that industry or group of industries. The Fund is not actively managed, and therefore the Fund will not generally dispose of a security unless the security is removed from the Index. The Index calculation methodology may rely on information based on assumptions and estimates and neither the Fund nor its investment adviser can guarantee the accuracy of the methodology’s assessment of included issuers. Performance may vary substantially from the performance of the Index as a result of transaction costs, expenses and other factors.
The Goldman Sachs Access Treasury 0-1 Year ETF (the “Fund”) seeks to provide investment results that closely correspond, before fees and expenses, to the performance of the FTSE US Treasury 0-1 Year Composite Select Index (the “Index”), which is designed to measure the performance of U.S. Treasury Securities (as defined in the Fund’s Prospectus) with a maximum remaining maturity of 12 months. The Fund’s investments are subject to the risks associated with debt securities generally, including credit, liquidity and interest rate risk. Any guarantee on U.S. Treasury Securities applies only to the underlying securities of the Fund if held to maturity and not to the value of the Fund’s shares. The Fund is not actively managed, and therefore the Fund will not generally dispose of a security unless the security is removed from the Index. The Index calculation methodology may rely on information based on assumptions and estimates and neither the Fund nor its investment adviser can guarantee the accuracy of the methodology’s valuation of securities. Performance may vary substantially from the performance of the Index as a result of transaction costs, expenses and other factors. The Fund is not a money market fund and does not attempt to maintain a stable net asset value.
Model Portfolios are managed by Goldman Sachs Asset Management’s Multi-Asset Solutions (MAS) team. Whilst the name of the team has changed over the course of the past several years, any historical references to this group of investment professionals who offer this service at Goldman Sachs Asset Management is presented under the name of Multi-Asset Solutions. There is no guarantee that these objectives will be met. We note that model portfolios are not appropriate for all investors and are not riskless investments, so investors can lose money. The information does not constitute a recommendation from Goldman Sachs Asset Management.
Proprietary Model Portfolios
When selecting Portfolio Funds for inclusion in a Propriety Model Portfolio, Goldman Sachs Asset Management generally expects to select Portfolio Funds sponsored by Goldman Sachs Asset Management or any of its affiliates (any such Portfolio Fund, a “GS Portfolio Fund”) without considering or canvassing the universe of Portfolio Funds sponsored by persons not affiliated with Goldman Sachs Asset Management or any of its affiliates (“Third Party Portfolio Funds”), even though there may (or may not) be one or more Third Party Portfolio Funds that may be more appropriate for inclusion in such Model Portfolio (including available Third Party Portfolio Funds in the applicable asset classes / sub-asset classes that may have lower fees and expenses or other favorable terms relative to a GS Portfolio Fund), unless Goldman Sachs Asset Management determines, in its sole discretion, that a GS Portfolio Fund is not available in the relevant asset class / sub-asset class. To the extent that an appropriate GS Portfolio Fund is not available, only then will Goldman Sachs Asset Management consider Third Party Portfolio Funds for inclusion in a Model Portfolio. Any Third Party Portfolio Funds used in the Model Portfolios shall be selected by Goldman Sachs Asset Management, in its sole discretion.
Open Architecture Model Portfolios
When selecting Portfolio Funds for inclusion in an Open Architecture Model Portfolio, Goldman Sachs Asset Management generally relies on an open architecture fund selection methodology. Instead of using proprietary funds, Goldman Sachs Asset Management researches the universe of investable funds for inclusion in its model portfolios. The best fit for the model is chosen, regardless of the fund. Any Third Party Portfolio Funds used in the Model Portfolios shall be selected by Goldman Sachs Asset Management in its sole discretion.
Open Architecture Model Portfolios refer to those previously managed by Standard and Poors Investment Advisory Services, LLC (now known as Goldman Sachs Asset Management Strategist Portfolios, LLC).
Model performance has important inherent limitations, particularly that the results do not represent actual trading may not reflect the impact that material economic and market factors might have had on the portfolio manager’s decision-making if the portfolio manager were actually managing clients’ money. Investors following the model will experience different performance, which may be lower or higher than the model performance reported.
Exchange-Traded Funds are subject to risks similar to those of stocks. Investment returns may fluctuate and are subject to market volatility, so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, or sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. ETFs may yield investment results that, before expenses, generally correspond to the price and yield of a particular index. There is no assurance that the price and yield performance of the index can be fully matched.
